Lwala Community Alliance: CommCare for Improving Vaccination Rates

Project Overview

Lwala Community Alliance in Kenya fights high rates of maternal mortality and HIV. Using a community-led health model and a custom CommCare-based mobile application, Community Health Workers (CHWs) register each pregnant woman or child under five years old into the formal healthcare system. The application then walks the CHW through the proper workflows for vaccinations, family planning, disease diagnosis and treatment, or a number of other requested services. So far, the program has reached vaccination rates of over 95% across a population of 60,000 people.
